Gerard Butler’s ‘Greenland’ Delays September Release Amid Pandemic

AOL Mail (698)

Greenland is delaying its Sept. 25 release amid the ongoing challenges facing the domestic box office due to the COVID-19 pandemic, including continued cinema closures in Los Angeles and New York City.

Instead, the apocalyptic disaster-adventure pic will be released sometime in the fourth quarter, STXfilms said Monday.

Greenland stars Butler as John Garrity, whose family must fight for survival as a planet-killing comet races to earth. He and his estranged wife, along with their young son, embark on a monumental trek that culminates in a desperate and last-minute flight to a possible safe haven.

Morena Baccarin and Scott Glenn co-star in the movie, which was directed by Ric Roman Waugh.

Overseas, Greenland has earned a promising $12.5 million to date. STX notes it has performed better in key territories than the Angel Has Fallen series and Geostorm, all films starring Butler.
